Panasonic handhelds enable PostNL to increase traceability

PostNL chose Panasonic handhelds for their scanning speed, long battery life and the angled barcode scanner

BRACKNELL, UK. 30th OCTOBER 2017 – Panasonic Computer Product Solutions has recently signed an agreement with PostNL, the largest parcel delivery company in Benelux, for almost 5,000 rugged Panasonic Toughpad FZ-N1 handhelds. Using the new handhelds, PostNL plans to offer customers better and more real-time tracking of their deliveries, from the sorting centers to the delivery address.

During the selection process, different devices were field tested by PostNL employees. Taking into account their feedback, the company chose the Panasonic FZ-N1 handheld. Some of the most important factors in determining the choice were scanning speed, long battery life and durability, but in particular the ergonomic design of the device with the angled barcode scanner.

Margot Lannoy, Country Manager for Benelux at Panasonic Computer Product Solutions, said: “We are pleased that PostNL has chosen this solution using one of our latest rugged handhelds. These handheld devices have been developed and optimised based on our many years of experience in the logistics market. The PostNL project confirms that we have chosen the right strategy in developing our new rugged handhelds. “

Gerrie de Jonge, Director of IT Packages & Logistics at PostNL, said: “Every day PostNL deals with more than 575,000 packages and this number is increasing. With this new mobile platform, we will continue to cater effectively for this growing e-commerce market and its impact on e-logistics. Both e-commerce companies and end-users rely on us to deliver orders in a timely and efficient manner. This new hardware enables us to further improve our service.”
